A wind-sock for racism of the 90s
Whenever I hear about how "racist" society is, I just think back to shows like "In Living Color", "The Wayans Brothers" or anything else FOX tried to convince the public was "cool" in the early 90's. It's not that some of these shows weren't funny ("In Living Color" was of course ground-breaking), but EVERY joke always boiled down to "White people be like...and BLACK folk be like..." And that's exactly what "True Colors" started as; there was never a moment where anyone actually thought the protagonists (an upper-middle class white woman and a professional well-spoken black man who for some reason raised hip-hop/ghetto-talking sons that sounded nothing like him) would actually end up spontaneously married...unless they both shared bad foresight. The barrier of mixed families had LONG been broken in the 70s and 80s, so this was simply a vehicle to get some millage off black culture (and hopefully luring in a white audience to see what would happen). But bad acting, campy script-writing and a character-change in mid-season just made this an epic fail.
